CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa (WTAJ) – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced Monday, July 25 that bridge preservation work is shifting to a pair of Interstate 80 bridges.

Traffic control measures will be set up on I-80 eastbound and westbound between mile markers 105.5 to 106.5 on Friday, July 29. Beginning Monday, August 1, the right (travel) lane will be closed, and a 13.5-foot width restriction will be in place for the left (passing) lane while crews perform the repairs.

PennDOT expects this traffic pattern to be in place for approximately six weeks. Updates will be issued as traffic patterns are changed.

The bridges span Anderson Creek in Union Township, Clearfield County. The project includes deck repairs, roadway approach work and the placement of high friction surfaces that will improve the rating of four bridges in Clearfield and Clinton counties from fair to good.
